Albany -- Tuesday night Albany City Commissioners once again postponed a vote on a new sign ordinance.

Commissioners say they are close to reaching a compromise on new rules for billboards that will satisfy everyone who is involved.

"We've had some meetings. We've had some discussions with some people that are involved with it. And we think we have reached what we think to be a pretty good sign ordinance," said Ward II City Commissioner, Dorothy Hubbard.

The plan will limit the number of digital signs allowed on a street and the distance between them. It will also state how often those animated signs can change.

Commissioners hope to vote on the proposal May 20th.
